Abstracts and Presentations

To be considered for a short oral presentation or poster please submit an abstract through the meeting’s easychair submission page. Abstracts should be prepared on one side of A4 (pdf format) and should describe new or recently published data science research. We will consider submissions which demonstrate advances in data science or AI methodology and/or applications of data science. This year’s meeting is themed around four topics: Health & Wellbeing, AI & Robotics, NLP & Text Mining and Security & Privacy.

We will keep a small number of spaces available until after decisions on submissions are released to ensure that speakers for accepted contributed presentations can register. However, due to space limitations at the venue and the popularity of last summer’s conference, we encourage people to register as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
